Vegetable purees

I spent this evening making some vegetable purees for my little boy. Over the last few weeks we’ve been working our way through some tasty foods from Hipp Organic and Plum which have gone down very well. However I really want to make my own purees so I read Annabel Karmel’s Top 100 Baby Purees for some inspiration. Today I stopped off at the local supermarket and bought a butternut squash and a bag of carrots.

I washed, peeled and cooked the vegetables separately and then pureed butternut squash, carrots and some leftover mashed potato in our blender with a little formula milk. My little Kenwood hand blender struggled with the vegetable chunks so I might look out for a better blender. However, I managed to fill 11 pots with tasty (!) puree which will get us through a good few meal times. Not bad for a few hours work!
